I don't know if this has been posted yet or not.

I happened to be scrolling through GoHastings and noticed that they were taking pre-orders for the game listed in the title.

There's the link if you want to check it out, but...does it seem a bit strange? (Since they were supposed to only be sold through Amazon and GameStop of US and Canada.)

Wherever that store/restaurant in your avatar is... it will be my life goal to find it and open "My Nizzle" to the right of it.

There's probably a good chance if it got fulfilled they'll just be shipping out the regular edition to everybody, lol. I definitely wouldn't be surprised seeing how Hastings just has terrible luck with CEs, new or used.

These are supposed to be exclusive to GS and Amazon... I'm guessing this is a mistake.

I don't know since they also have a separate listing for the regular edition, with different UPC:

I'm going to skip... I'm pretty sure it's the CE (the price is different) and Gohasting is pretty legit. I can't support my addiction to CE/LE anymore, unless it's marked down. Thanks for the heads up though.

I placed an order, it's not like you can't cancel or return it if it's indeed the wrong item.

It might end up like the deluxe edition of Catherine were it was supposed to be made for pre-orders demand only yet was vastly available for months after launch. I would take Atlus USA words on collector's edition with a grain of salt these days.

Lord.. think for one second; if Atlus did decide to make more you honestly think GoHastings would be the first retailer they would release them to?

GTFO. Be honest with yourself. You know this is an error

Yea...why would it not go to Best Buy first? But who knows, try the purchase and you might be rewarded.

The only thing I can think of is that GoHastings is a small time regional media store correct?

In the northeast (Maine, NH, MA) we have a store called Bull Moose Music which is similar but I'm sure a little smaller then GoHastings.

They have an Amazon store as well as physical B&M locatins and are notorious for preordering items from Amazon (i.e. exclusives) and reselling them in their stores.

I suppose it is possible GoHastings has done something similar seeing how they have a Amazon store but no way did they get a direct second shipment from Atlus

Gohastings is a lot bigger than bullmoose, with several stores in multiple states and a thriving online store. So I could see them getting these types of editions without having to buy and resell from Amazon. They are too big for that and there is no point in buying from Amazon and reselling at the same price.

That said, either this is an error or the edition is not limited like they said?

I don't buy used games but my experience with GoHasting concerning new games and preorder has been petty bush league (commony cancel orders on eBay and their own site) rediculous shipping fees, no combined discount, ship in poly bags (not padded mailers) etc.

I know it makes not sense from a profit stand point but parading around on the internet that you have a rare edition to sell; even at MSRP would drive up traffic and make people remember you.

Again it's a moot point because if Atlus had extra to sell they wouldn't JUST go to GoHastings (bigger fish in the sea)

and if they were printing more then 10,000 their would be press on it

You know what be really scary/sad this might actually go through, and amazon/gamestop would bail on us kinda like with Virtue's Last reward. I'm just saying someone from CAG might pull a Better Business Bureau on that!
